I mentioned a few posts ago that if the Leafs lost their last game against the Ottawa Senators and if the Phoenix Coyotes won against the Anaheim ducks that the Leafs would fall to fifth last and into the lottery for the top draft pick. This would give them an 8% chance of selecting first… Sure beats a 0% chance.
But my Leafs, ah my Leafs, always find a way to screw up, like last night with their win over Ottawa while the Coyotes… WON.
So the Leafs finish 6th last. No lottery. Nothing.
Thank goodness this season is over. Now I get to watch the New York Islanders get John Tavaras and the Colorado Avalanche get Victor Hedman, while the Buds draft someone from somewhere who probably wont make the NHL.
